Publisher's Summary

A rollicking fantasy-adventure by the master of children's speculative fiction.

Talking dogs. Mischievous wizards. An evil stepstepfather. Loads and loads of toads. Such is the life of a Frogkisser.

Princess Anya needs to see a wizard about a frog. It's not her frog; it's her sister's. And it's not a frog; it's actually a prince. A prince who was once in love with Anya's sister but has now been turned into a frog by their evil stepstepfather. And Anya has made a 'sister promise' that she will find a way to return Prince Denholm to human form....

So begins an exciting, hilarious, irreverent quest through the Kingdom of Trallonia and out the other side, in a fantastical tale for all ages, full of laughs and danger, surprises and delights, and an immense population of frogs.

Quirky and clever

My husband, 4 year old son and I have listened to this twice in the last three days and chuckle at various points throughout the story. We bought it on Audible after my son and I had previously borrowed the audiobook from the local library and listened to it twice before. I suspect we’ll be listening to it many more times to come!

I only lasted 2 hours, before abandoning it

I would say that this was too childish for me, but there are some amazing kid’s books and fairy-tales out there. This was just boringly average, both the story and the narration

Adventure, excitement and plenty of humour. Great characters great story, will be listening again and again I would say and probably reading it to my future kids. I hope there's a movie in the works!
